FLINT Brothers

Flint Genealogy

F       Robert O Flint (c1761–1824)

From his 4 Apr 1824 will we learn that he lived at Hempnall, Norfolk, England; that he was a thatcher; and that his wife’s name was Charlotte.1 I found a record that lists Charlotte Beauford Flint as the spouse of Robert Flint. No date is given and no place other than “Norfolk”, but a child, Robert, is mentioned.2

Fa                Robert George Flint Sr (c1784–1859)

He was apparently an only child.3 In England he lived at Lowestoft, Suffolk.4 He immigrated to Canada by way of New York City in 1830.5 Before immigration he owned and operated a fishing smack, served as a soldier in North America, and had charge of a fort in England during the Napoleonic Wars.6 In Canada he was a stonemason and farmer.7 He died on 27 Apr 1859 at Byron, Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, Canada West and is buried in Brick Street Cemetery, London, Middlesex Co, ON.8

At St Margaret’s Church, Lowestoft, Suffolk, on 28 Nov 1814 Robert married Hannah Pirney,9 also seemingly an only child10. She had been born on 18 May 1788 at Lowestoft and baptized there on 21 May. Her parents were Patrick Perney, born c1760 in Scotland, and Ann Deed,11 who died when Hannah was small and she was brought up in a boarding school12. She may have used the name “Ann” for a time, as that is the mother’s name on the baptismal record for her son George in 1818 and a daughter Mary in 1819. At the times of son Pirney’s birth in 1824 and daughter Patience’s death in 1830, the Flints lived at Hempnall, Norfolk, Robert’s probable birthplace. Hannah followed her husband to Canada in 183313 and after arrival she operated a school in her home14. Her father remarried Mary (Cross) Mewse, a widow, at Lowestoft on 2 Nov 1797.15 In the 1861 Canada census, Hannah was living with her daughter Mary, who was married to William Blinn. She died 21 Dec 1865 in Middlesex Co, Canada West. She is buried with her husband in Brick Street Cemetery, London, Middlesex Co, ON.16

Faa                        Robert George Flint Jr (1816–1885)

He was baptized on 18 Jul 1816 at Lowestoft, Suffolk, England.17 In 1830 he immigrated to Canada via New York with his father and brother George.18 He grew up in Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, Upper Canada, and learned the mason’s trade from his father. In the early 1840s he moved to Valparaiso, Porter Co, IN, where he operated a store and then a brickworks.19 About 1850 he traveled to California, where he soon got into the business of acquiring large herds of cattle in Baja California, fattening them on various of his ranches and then selling them to butchers, first in the Mother Lode country, later in San Francisco and Sacramento.20 Flint lived a number of places in California21 before amassing two huge ranches in San Luis Obispo County—Rancho San Juan Capistrano (not, of course, the San Juan Capistrano Mission in Southern California) and Rancho Nacimiento, each of more than 50,000 acres. He was living at Rancho San Juan by 1860. On 14 Jun 1869 Robert married Eliza Elson at Byron, Middlesex Co, ON,22 and returned with her to California. He died on 2 Nov 1885.23 His body was shipped “home” and buried in Brick Street Cemetery, London, ON, with his wife, who had preceded him in death.24

Faaa                                Hannah Mary (“Minnie”) Flint (1869–1954)

She was born 31 Jan 1870 at Rancho San Juan Capistrano, San Luis Obispo Co, CA.25 After her mother’s death in 1877, she was taken to London, ON, to be raised in the household of Samuel and Amelia Gibson. Mrs Gibson was her mother’s half-sister. In 1894 she resided in the Gibson household at 157 Oxford St, London.26 In London on 5 Jun 1895 she married Frederick Arthur (“Fred”) Andrewes (18 Mar 1871–18 Jun 1949). Minnie died on 8 Mar 1954 at London, Middlesex Co, ON.27 She and her husband are buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery, London, ON.28

Faab                                Robert (“Rob”) Flint (b c1872)

He was born in San Luis Obispo Co, CA, probably at Rancho San Juan. After his mother’s death in 1877, he was taken to London, ON, to be raised in the household of Samuel and Amelia Gibson. About 1893 he took over operation of Rancho San Juan, which he had inherited from his father, but he lost the ranch through mismanagement and prodigality. It is not known what happened to him thereafter, except that in the 1930 census he was in San Francisco working as a foreman at an oil company. He apparently never married.

Faac                                George Buford Flint (c1873–1935)

He was born in San Luis Obispo Co, CA, and named after his uncle George who had died in 1849. After his mother’s death he was also raised in the Gibson household in London, ON. He assumed the management of Rancho Nacimiento, another of his late father’s San Luis Obispo Co ranches about 1894. In San Francisco in 1895 he married Olive E Holmes (1876–1971)30. Around the beginning of 1896, George sold his ranch after operating it for less than a year and a half. In 1900 George and Olive were living in Paso Robles, CA. In censuses thereafter they lived in Sacramento. During World War I, George worked as a boilermaker at Mare Island Naval Shipyard, Vallejo, CA. He died in Sacramento, CA, on 10 Jan 1935. George and Olive had no children.

Faad                                Elizabeth (“Bessie”) Flint (1875–c1927)

She was born in San Luis Obispo Co, CA in May 1875. After her mother’s death she was said to have been raised in the household of William and Martha Elizabeth Blinn. William was her father’s nephew. In 1894 she resided at 159 Oxford St, London.31 I wonder if this is a mistake since she is listed with her sisters Hannah and Eliza and cousin Edna, but they are in the Gibson household at 157 Oxford. In 1898 she married widower Charles W Ruppe (b c1858). Subsequently they lived in Yonkers, NY. They had daughters Mabel and Florence, born about 1902 and 1913, respectively. Elizabeth is listed with her husband in a Yonkers City Directory for 1927, but is absent from the 1928 edition. Charles is listed there as late as 1936.

Faae                                Eliza Elson (“Lyle”) Flint (28 Mar 1877–6 Oct 1942)

The birthdate of 28 Mar 1880 on Lyle’s gravestone is surely incorrect, since her mother died in 1877. The “28 Mar” may well be her correct birthday as her birth in the 1901 Canada census is given as Mar 1877. In 1894 she was living at 157 Oxford St, London, with her sister Hannah and her cousin Edna in the Gibson household.32 From 8 to 22 Mar 1908 she was apparently vacationing at Redlands, CA, with her cousin Fanny Flint. Fanny’s sister Mary (my grandmother) was visiting them as well.33 On 26 Apr all three women were in Santa Monica, which was apparently Lyle and Fanny’s normal residence.34 In the 1920 US census Lyle was living at 1218 5th Street, Santa Monica, with a boarder named Grace Durner. In 1930 she was living at the same address with her cousins Fanny (Flint) Granacher and Peter Flint. A 1934 letter indicates that she and Peter were at San Miguel—

“. . . You will be surprised to see I am still in S[an] M[iguel]; had expected to be in Santa Monica before this but have been pretty busy doing some inside decoration in the way of painting & fixing Up; have reached the porch now so expect to see me going down the front steps now pretty soon. ha! ha! Yes, was doing some fancy painting round the railing—cream & green—really looks quite swell. Wish you could see it. some length porch, all round front & side sixty foot. some way to go but managed nicely. . . .”35

In 1935 and 1940 she was back at 1218 5th St, Santa Monica, with her cousin Fanny. It would appear that Lyle regularly shaved a few years from her age. She died on 6 Oct 1942 in Los Angeles36 and was cremated37, but has a marker in San Luis Cemetery, San Luis Obispo, CA.38

Fab                        George Beaufort Flint (1818–1849)

He was baptized on 20 Apr 1818, at Lowestoft, Suffolk, England.39 In 1830 he immigrated to Canada via New York with his father and brother Robert.40 He grew up in Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, Upper Canada, and learned the mason’s trade from his father. He died on 27 Sep 1849 at the age of 31, under uncertain circumstances—

“. . . in your last I was suprised and pained at the death of George. poor brother. I remember so well of our going to school together and playing and working together as if it had been but a few days since and now he is gone as it were in the prime of life. some times My pride was hurt to see him follow the course he did but he was More to be pitted than blamed. it was his Missforture as well as Error and who shall judge but the divine Auther of all life. I cannot write any More this evening.”41

George is buried in Brick Street Cemetery, London, ON, with his parents.42

Fac                        Mary Butcher Flint (1819)

A Mary Butcher Flint, daughter of Robert, was baptized at Lowestoft, Suffolk, England, on 6 Dec 1819. The record reports her mother’s name as “Ann”. Apparently this child did not survive and the name was recycled. A Butcher family of Lowestoft can be traced from the late 1600s and early 1700s.43 Ancestry.com lists many Mary Butchers in Suffolk. Mary, daughter of Benjamin and Mary Butcher was baptized at Lowestoft on 20 Aug 1819; another Mary, daughter of John and Laetitia Butcher was baptized at Lowestoft on 24 Nov 1819.44

Fad                        Mary Butcher Flint (1821–1898)

Another Mary Butcher Flint was baptized at Lowestoft, on 16 Nov 182145. In this entry her mother’s name is given as “Hannah”. Mary came to Canada with her mother in 1833 and grew up in Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, Upper Canada/Canada West. In 184746 she married William Blinn (27 Jun 1823, in Lower Canada [today’s Québec]47–8 Jan 189048), a miller. They first lived at Centreville, Oxford Co, ON. About 1850 they moved to Westminster Twp.

Fada                                Eliza M Blinn (1848–1859)

She died 23 Apr 1859 and is buried in Brick Street Cemetery.49

Fadb                                Robert Warren (“Rob”) Blinn (1849–1938)

He was born 27 Nov 1849 at Centreville, ON, and was said to have been “once a ranch hand in California”.50 For the greater part of his life he was a farmer on lot 36, concession 4, Westminster Twp.51 In London, ON, On 18 Dec 1877 he married Margaret (“Maggie”) Deacon, of Irish descent, born 24 Mar 1853, at Dorchester, ON.52 She died 19 Jan 1934.53 Blinn died 4 Oct 1938. There don’t seem to have been any children. His estate of more than a quarter of a million dollars, made up principally of mortgages on farm lands, was divided among his nieces and nephews, Brick Street United Church, and Brick Street Cemetery.54 Both husband and wife are buried in Brick Street Cemetery.55

Fadc                                William George Blinn (1853–1931)

W G Blinn was born 3 Oct 1853. He was a farmer and gardener. On 13 Jan 1879 he married (1) Martha Elizabeth Hammond (?Jan 1857–5 Nov 1898). Robert G Flint Jr’s daughter Elizabeth (“Bessie”) is said to have been raised in this household.56 In an 1891 London City Directory Blinn's address is given as “e Ridout n of Stanley”.57 In an 1897 directory, W G Blinn was a freeholder on lot 30 concession 1, Westminster Twp; his post office was London.58 Married (2) 3 Jan 1900 at Westminster, Margaret A Carroll59 (b 10 Feb 1871). The occupation given for William and his son Warren in the 1901 census was “gardener”. In 1918 he is living in Wainwright, Alberta, and listed as next of kin in his son Eli’s military record.60 In the 1921 census, he was living in a wooden house on his own farm in Gilt Edge Municipality, Battle River, AB. His household consisted of his two sons Warren and Eli, both farmers. He died 9 Mar 1931 and shares a stone in Brick Street Cemetery, London, with his first wife.61

From about 1844 to about 1850 he lived in Valparaiso, IN, where he and a partner operated a store.76 Then he traveled to California, where he tried his hand at gold mining at Volcano, Amador Co.77 About 1855 he returned to his parents’ farm in Canada. On 1 Jun 1859 he married Ann Elson78 (c1838–1874). Pirney died on 28 Jun 1891 at the age of 66.79 He is buried in Brick Street Cemetery.80

Faea                                Charlotte Hannah Flint (1860–1929)

She was born at Byron, Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, ON. According to the 1901 Canada census she was born on Christmas day 1864; but her gravestone says 186181, which is probably closer to the truth. She appears in the 1861 census as 1 year old. According to the 1910 US census she moved to California in 1887, but in the 1901 Canada census she is a farmer in Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, ON, and her sisters Annie and Fanny are living with her. In the 1910 and 1920 US censuses, she is living with her brother Peter in San Miguel, CA. “Charlotte . . . was known to be a historian and rumor has it that her tales of early San Miguel were spiced with wit and humor”82. She died 7 Feb 192983 and is buried in San Luis Cemetery, San Luis Obispo, CA.84

Faeb                                Robert George (“Bob”) Flint III (1862–1933)

He was born at Byron, Middlesex Co, ON, on 27 Feb 1862. In 1883 he moved to California and worked on his Uncle Robert’s Rancho Nacimiento. He became a naturalized U S citizen on 12 May 1886. About 1892 he married Anna Davis (1862–1933).85 Their only child, Anna Ethel Flint (1894–1941), was born at Rancho Nacimiento. Anna Flint married Everett John Hoy and they had a daughter Florence Elizabeth (“Betty”) Hoy (1923–2001)86 After Rancho Nacimiento was sold, R G Flint III worked as a butcher,87 a farmer,88 and was a partner in a cigar store.89

“Robert was a great horse fancier and had some of the best animals along with the best of outfits available. He was also the first in the area to have a phonograph. He would play it at its highest speed and as loud as he could so it could be heard at the other end of town.”90

Both Robert and Anna are buried in San Luis Cemetery, San Luis Obispo, CA, as are their daughter and granddaughter.91

Faec                                Mary Bertha Flint (1864–1915)
She was born 7 Apr 1864.92 She appears, aged 7, in her father’s household in the 1871 census. Soon after that census she apparently started living with her Aunt Mary Blinn.93 I can’t find her in the 1881 census. In the 1891 census Mary is still with her aunt, now widowed. At Byron on 19 Oct 1898 she married Thomas Arthur (“Art”) Baker (1872–1964),94 a fruit and berry farmer seven years her junior and a head shorter. In March and April 1908 Mary visited her sister Fanny, her brother Peter and her cousin Lyle in California.95 Mary died in London, ON, 5 Jun 1915 at the age of 50. The “Disease Causing Death” on her death certificate is “Arterial sclerosis”; its duration is “years”; the immediate cause of death is “Apoplexy”, duration “3 days”. She is buried in Woodland Cemetery, London.96 On 18 Oct 1916 Arthur Baker m(2) Lucretia Elizabeth Freeman (1881, Stroud, Gloucester, England–1965, London, ON). She bore him four more children.

Peter was born 9 Apr 1870104 at Byron, Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, ON. According to the 1900 US census, Peter was living at San Miguel, San Luis Obispo Co, CA, with his brother Robert G Flint III and Robert’s wife and child and had immigrated to the US in 1890. A family story has it that my mother’s Uncle Peter was in San Francisco during the 1906 earthquake and fire and wrote a letter home to Canada to say he was okay. Unable to find paper, he wrote it on a shirt cuff. In the 1910 and 1920 census he was living an R Street, San Miguel with his sister Charlotte and was naturalized in 1906. In 1895 Peter was in partnership with his brother Robert in a butcher shop.105 In 1900 he worked as a laborer on Robert’s farm. In 1910 he was an engineer at a flour mill and in 1920 he was keeper of his own restaurant.
“Peter was a bachelor and was a ‘lady’s man’ and one of the areas most eligible, but never married. He was an excellent cook and had a chop house or a café in San Miguel.”106
“. . . Peter was a bachelor who was a ‘Beau Brummel.’ [The 1918 voter registration index lists a Peter Flint, restaurant keeper; in 1934, Peter Flint is listed as ‘retired.’] . . .”107

Peter died 5 Sep 1943 in Los Angeles.108 He is buried in San Luis Cemetery, San Luis Obispo, CA.109

Faeg                                Frances (“Fanny”) Flint (1872–1948)

Fanny Flint was born at Byron, Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, ON, 26 Jan 1872.110 In the 1901 census her birthdate is listed as 10 Feb 1875. This is not possible since her mother had died the previous year. Like her cousin Lyle, she seems to have regularly understated her age. Fanny’s mother died when she was two years old. In the 1881 and 1891 censuses she is 9 and 19, respectively, and is in the household of her widowed father, Pirney Flint. According to an 1895 list of voters, she and her sister Annie lived on lot 25 in concession 2, London Twp, Middlesex Co. In 1896 and 1898 she was apparently living at or near her father’s old place in Westminster Twp.111 In 1901 she was 27 and living with her sisters Charlotte and Annie.

According to the 1930 US census Fanny immigrated to the US in 1904 but was not naturalized. “Fannie was . . . very popular. She married and moved to Oroville in the Gold country.”112 In 1912 or before she married John Karl Granacher (4 Mar c1884–11 Jun 1957), who was born at Laufenburg, Kanton Aargau, Switzerland and had immigrated on 26 Feb 1901. In various documents his year of birth is given as 1878, 1881 and 1889. In his Declaration of Intention to be naturalized, dated 12 Mar 1912, he gave his occupation as “paint merchant” and his residence as 1218 5th Street, Santa Monica, CA.113 According to the Santa Monica, California, City Directory, 1917, Mrs Fannie Granacher lived at 1218 5th St, but John does not seem to be present. In 1918 John and Frances lived at Yuba, Sutter Co, CA, where John was a farmer.114 In 1920 they were still there and John was a fruit farmer. In 1926 and 1928 John was an “orchardist” in Sutter Co.115 In 1936, he is a gardener at Benbow, Humboldt Co, CA.116 In the 1930 directory, Fanny lived at 218 (I believe the actual house number was 1218, unless Santa Monica changed the house numbers, then changed them back) 5th Street. In the 1933, 1935 and 1938 editions she lived in the same place. In the 1940 census her address is given as 1218 5th St, and she had lived in the same house in 1935; it also says she was naturalized. She was living with her cousin, Lyle Flint. Fanny and John Granacher seemingly lived apart most of their married life, yet they were together when I met them in Santa Monica just weeks before Aunt Fanny’s death in 1948. John claimed to be an inventor. An invention I remember was a glass ball for the top of a flagpole. It was painted on the inside so that nobody would have to climb up there to paint it regularly. It always struck me that someone would have to climb up to paint the flagpole just below it anyway. Frances (Flint) Granacher died 31 May 1948 at Los Angeles, CA.117 Although she chose to be cremated, she has a grave marker in San Luis Cemetery, San Luis Obispo, CA.118 Fanny and John Granacher Credit: McKay scrapbook

Aunt Edna was born 13 Jun 1874 at Byron, Westminster Twp, Middlesex Co, ON.119 Her mother died 3 weeks later. In the 1881 census she was in the Samuel Gibson household, 6 years old. In 1891 she is listed as “Edna Ann Gibson, 16, D[aughter]”. In 1894 she was still there, aged 20.120 In the 1901 census 26-year-old Edna G Flint was erroneously listed as born in California, and again as the Gibsons’ daughter. In subsequent records she seems to have consistently used Gibson as her surname. In 1911 Edna Gibson, 36, is listed as the daughter of Amelia Gibson, Samuel’s widow. In 1921 Edna, 42, is listed as Amelia’s granddaughter. On the 1928 death certificate of Amelia Gibson, Edna is listed as Amelia’s daughter. She was still living at 157 Oxford Street.121 In a 1935 voters list Miss Edna Gibson, spinster, lives at 72 Rogers in London with two other unmarried women.122 Edna Ann Gibson Flint died 31 Jan 1949 and is buried in Woodland Cemetery, London, ON.123

Faf                         Patience Flint (1826–1830)

Mentioned as having “died at sea” in a letter by Lyle Flint.124 Also listed as sixth child, following Pirney Flint, in William Blinn’s biography125 and on a family group sheet for Robert Flint supplied by the London Chapter of the Ontario Genealogical Society. A Patience Flint, daughter of Robert and Hannah was baptized on 4 Dec 1826 at Hempnall, Norfolk, England.126 Patience Flint, aged 3, was buried at Hempnall on Valentine’s Day 1830.127 Shortly, her parents left for America, but it doesn’t sound like she died at sea.

Fag                        H B Flint

Listed as seventh child, following Patience, in William Blinn’s biography128 and on the family group sheet. I have been unable to unearth anything else about this person, but he (or she) was not with his (or her) parents when they arrived in America.
